Barbara, etal

How about two answers to one. I hit paydirt last night.
Jesse Allen Moore, born 1841, Married Sarah Jerusha Jones in 1864 while home on furlough - the charm of the uniform.

Sarah died 15 Sep 1906 and a year later in Jefferson county, IL, Jesse married a second time to a widow Margaret Williams. The application for a marriage license indicates that his Mother was Sarah Hayes.

I do not know just when Illinois required the parents names on application for marriage license; however, there are probably another sibling or two who gave the same information when applying for a license.
